I don’t usually comment on things such as news releases about campaign committees.
But something landed in my inbox today that says a United Methodist pastor from York has joined the Obama-Biden campaign’s Interfaith Steering Committee in Pennsylvania.
The Rev. Drue Sherman, who served Aldersgate UMC in York Township from 1993-2000, is a recently retired pastor with the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Read the entire release at the jump.
